Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder
Panasonic DMR-E85H. The unit started playing up by self checking several times. Then it got worse by self checking and then just turning off, now I can't get it to work at all... it just self checks for a while and then the power turns off; it's almost like a fuse going every time. Any help would be great.
Not sure if this will help. My machine was stuck with a "Please Wait" message. Searched internet, many folks with problem. The fixes all pointed to 2 capacitors being blown. My brother was able to easily solder 2 new ones in and the machine worked perfectly. If you Google the name and model with Please Wait after it, you will see some of the conversations and remedies. Your machine may be heading toward this problem.
Also, beware of storing too much on your hard drive! My machine was working great after the above repair, but I believe I had too much stored on mine and I got a U99 Error Code. Service Center said it can not be repaired and THEY DO NOT MAKE THESE ANYMORE. There are DV machines with a hard drive so you can watch shows, but not to record show/movies. I make DVDs of my son's high school games. Can edit and transfer many games at once with this machine... not with any others!
Do not let this one die on you. It is priceless.
